The South Sperrins Scenic Driving Route is a one-way loop around the Sperrins, starting in Omagh.

It begins at the junction of the A5 and A32, heading north through Omagh to reach the B48, which it takes to just south of Gortin, taking Lenamore Road to approach Gortin from the east on the B46. From Gortin the route uses Liscabble Road to Newtownstewart, heading through the town and leaving it on Gortgranagh Road: taking a scenic route to the A5 via Bessy Bell. After a couple of miles on the A5 to Mountjoy it takes unclassified roads west, through Drumlegagh, to the B72 just east of Castlederg. Heading south of Castlederg on the B50, the route diverts on unclassfied roads to Bolaght Mountain, before rejoining the B50 and heading through Drumquin. It returns to Omagh by taking unclassified roads to Clanabogan and the A32.
